This photo from the Hulu adaptation of Celeste Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere crossed my timeline a few days ago, and it looks fab:

In case you missed it, Little Fires Everywhere is going to be a Hulu miniseries. Reese Witherspoon (currently the patron saint of awesome book-to-screen adaptations) is starring as prim suburbanite Elena Richardson, opposite Kerry Washington as Mia Warren, an eccentric photographer with a secret.
I absolutely loved the Celeste Ng novel. It was one of the first books I reviewed on this blog, in fact. Witherspoon and Washington are cast perfectly; I think a miniseries is exactly the right way to bring this to the screen. (And unlike all these HBO adaptations of late, I actually *do* have a subscription to Hulu, so I know I’ll be able to catch this one as it comes out.)
Other confirmed cast members include Rosemarie Dewitt as Linda McCullough, Joshua Jackson as Bill Richardson, and Huang Lu as Bebe Chow. You can follow @LittleFiresHulu on Twitter for more news about the miniseries.
Did you like the novel? Are you excited for the series? What do you think of all this casting news? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
